Time to start thinking about Strange Brewfest 2012! Back again for its 8th Annual celebration of stand out grog and incredible people, its only two months away.
This festival is a celebration of the unique spirit that the now-closed Water Street Brewing once encompassed. Strange Brewfest is a chance to see the creativity of Washington’s wonderful brewing community.
If this is the first time that you ever read this blog, you might not know about our affinity for a former brew house known as Water Street Brewing. The iconic pub once ruled the streets of Port Townsend, Washington, with incredible food, heartwarming charm and of course – excellent beer. If you need to catch up on why we loved (and still love) it so very much - read this post.
Of course, many of us were concerned that Water Street’s closing spelled the end to this event. But Nina and Mark, the committed owners of the former pub, have made sure that Strange Brewfest continues on! Last year’s event was the first to be held at the American Legion Hall in downtown Port Townsend. Once again, strange times will go down at the Legion building, a place that the organizers found successful last year.
So, book your hotel for January 27-29, 2012. There are a list of suggested hotels on the Strange Brewfest website. Be sure to peruse the rest of their website to find out more info on the event. The event costs $25.00 for…..the entire weekend. Deal.

Strange Brewfest 2012
Downtown Port Townsend at the American Legion
January 27-29, 2012
The Eighth Annual Strange Brewfest is just around the corner. This iconic celebration of uniquely crafted brews from around the Northwest will be held in downtown Port Townsend at the American Legion Hall on January 27-29, 2012.
This three day event will include over 30 breweries, featuring as many as 60 different styles of beer. As usual, the majority of beers to be sampled will only be available at this festival, because each brewery is strongly encouraged to be as creative as possible in concept and development of their quaffs.
This year’s festival will be loaded with music and entertainment all weekend. All three days will boast a tremendous lineup of gifted, energized musicians. We will have a costume contest on Saturday night. And, as usual, we will hold an awards ceremony on Sunday, with awards being given to the favorite breweries of the festival as voted on by you, the festival goer.
Enjoy delicious food outside from a variety of local vendors, while witnessing some of the zany antics this festival is known for.
This event is 21 and over and cash only.
